At the request of East Nantmeal, North Coventry, South Coventry, Union, Warwick, and West Vincent Townships, Natural Land Trust, French & Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust and Green Valleys Association have compiled a summary of the important natural, recreational, and historical resources in the Hopewell Big Woods. The report also provides information about the potential impacts of the proposed Commonwealth Pipeline or any other future utility rights-of-way that would pass through the landscape.
The Reading Eagle recently wrote about the Commonwealth Pipeline’s path through Berks and Chester County. The article, Right through the heart, indicated that county commissioners want to give access to natural gas service to business owners in northern Berks county along I-78. However to the south along the Berks-Chester county line there is a different point of view that sees the pipeline as a threat to the integrity of an important conservation area.
